“Lively, gratifying… shows in marvelous detail how their distinct personalities melded into a unique and protean force.”
- A.O. Scott, The New York Times
Recently watched this amazing documentary. Eames products are ubiquitous these days, hell even I have a cheapy knock-off. (See below) Would that I had the funds for an original! One day Nicole, one day.
This documentary is as much an account of the heyday of the Eames offices in Los Angeles as it is a fascinating look at the relationship between Charles and Ray Eames. I highly recommend it to anyone even vaguely involved or interested in design! Also its narrated by James Franco which… turns out to be a good thing I guess
Read a little more about the documentary on the Herman Miller site and have a look at the trailer below.
